Stefan Gates

Stefan Gates is a food adventurer. He spends his life working to inspire fascination with food by cooking, exploring and occasionally blowing stuff up. Stefan develops half of his own TV shows, and has made some pretty wild series to get people excited by what they eat (Food Factory, Gastronuts, Incredible Edibles, Full on Food), and also lots of serious documentaries about hunger, conflict and anthropology (Can Eating Insects Save the World?, Calves Heads and Coffee: The Golden Age of English Food, Cooking in the Danger Zone, Feasts).

Stefan loves food science (Food Factory, E Numbers: An Edible Adventure) and particularly enjoys staging big live food stunt shows. He work as a TV presenter/writer, an author, and a writer for various magazines and newspapers.

Stefan will take the stage at Creative Collisions to perform his ‘Gastronaut’ show.
